Innovating with tomatoes: LED lighting in growth chambers

19 October 2017 - Major subsidised project supported by the Northern Netherlands Provinces Alliance and provincial authorities in the Northern Netherlands.

Green4Health is developing a "plug-and-play" production method for snack tomatoes in growth chambers. The development involves combining an innovative tomato variety and cultivation method. Tomato cultivation in growth chambers is fully automated, is under LED lighting, and offers the best possible growth conditions. As the growth area is well insulated, there is minimal power consumption, while the possibility to produce close to consumers reduces the commuting distance. What's more, using this technique, production is possible in dry or urban areas, which is why this makes an important contribution to resolving global food issues. This is the first development of its kind, and ties in seamlessly with the RIS3 agenda for Northern Netherlands, providing at least 15–20 jobs for low-skilled workers in Winschoten, the Netherlands.
